    As re the digital CN options:
     
    Has anyone ever considered something like this
    https://www.panono.com/product/how-it-works
     
    creates all-around image that could be processed to recognize the sea horizon as well as a large number of celestial bodies.
    And the total number of pixels is large. Calibration shots at known locations from time to time.

    And without IR filters the sensors should work well for stars at night.
     
    Just a thought...
